The ACT is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions in the United States produced by ACT. Some students who perform poorly on the SAT find that they perform better on the ACT and vice versa. The ACT test has historically consisted of four tests: English, Math, Reading, and Science reasoning. In February 2005, an optional writing test was added to the ACT, mirroring changes to the SAT that took place later in March of the same year. All four-year colleges and universities in the U.S. accept the ACT, but different institutions place different emphases on standardized tests such as the ACT, compared to other factors of evaluation such as class rank, G.P.A., and extracurricular activities.
As the ACT is becoming an increasingly popular alternative or supplement to the SAT, C.C.B. prepares each student with a solid analytical skill set. The ACT is a great option for some students as it is an exam based more on achievement, than aptitude. We give our students over 1000 practice questions in the course, so that they will be prepared for any type of question. Our teachers focus on all five sections of the ACT—English, Math, Reading, Science and Writing.
